What's New with NFSA's Layout Technician Class?
The NFSA's Learning and Development Team has restructured and revamped its Layout Technician class. While the course maintains many of its core contents and topics, it is being taught in a new way that provides deeper learning, more engaging activities, and directly applicable real-world scenarios.

This class is designed for anyone new to the fire protection industry, or anyone who is simply trying to learn more and advance their career, such as designers, estimators, and sales professionals.
